THE CRITICS RAVE!
“A gentle production that lets Gurney speak for himself...Later Life reminds us of what a craftsman Gurney was, and how many rueful shades of warmth he could find in frozen lives....I came away from this production with new respect for Later Life, which now seems to me one of his most eloquent statements on an archetype that hears the chimes at midnight almost from the moment of birth."
“Gurney [is] a prolific interpreter of upper-middle-class discontent...Peppering the dialogue are flashes of Gurney's humor as he satirizes white privilege and its casual racism.”
“They must be knowingly cast and intelligently directed to make their full effect, and Keen Company, here as always, is up to the challenge... with identical skill and sensitivity, striking just the right balance between the growing seriousness of Austin and Ruth and the frivolity of the other guests.”
“[Later Life] once again showcases Mr. Gurney's skill at creating a play that reveals something deeper and sadder beneath its light-hearted and comic surface.” -- Curtain Up
“It keeps us guessing until the end and offers its quartet of actors ample opportunity to shine. Which these four certainly do.” -- Talkin’ Broadway
"You really can’t go wrong seeing [Keen Company], as their shows are always well cast with top-notch production design." -- Theater Pizzazz
